Email Update: 7/29/2013--First Week in the Field

Nathanael hasn't had a chance to get a memory card reader, but promises photos soon. Here's his email:
The mission field has been pretty cool so far, with all of the members feeding us, a 9 year old girl getting baptized this last Saturday, and working with a few more investigators. The members like to make the best meal for us when we visit, so I haven't had a small dinner since I left the MTC! By the way, you should look for a recipe for Strawberry Rubarb Pie; that's what we had for desert on Wednesday, and it was awesome!! The girl's name is Roxy Kitchen, and she had a baptismal date before I arrived at the area, so I just got to see the baptism. It was really fun; her mom is a less-active member, but she still came for the baptism and the confirmation on Sunday. It was really helpful to get to see someone join the church so soon after entering the Mission Field; I needed the boost in confidence.
One of the other people we are teaching is named Dan, and he's great to talk to, fun to be around, and keeps the commitments he makes. He wants to be baptized, but can't yet because of some personal issues that he is working on with us. So, for now, we go over and continue teaching, and help where we can.
That is pretty much the size of what's going on up here. I gotta say, 1400 people are much slower paced than 100,000+
